University of Wyoming senior Ryan Russi was selected as the Western Athletic Conference Diver of the Week for the second time this season on Tuesday.

It’s the fourth time in his career Russi has earned the honor.

Russi swept both diving events in Saturday’s 163.50-136.50 win over Cal Baptist. A senior from Murrieta, California, Russi finished first in the 1-meter event with a score of 290.40 points 294.80 points in 3-meter. His score in the 1-meter dive was a season-best and he won the 3-meter dive by more than 10 points.


Former Cowboys tight end placed on injured reserve

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots have placed tight end Jacob Hollister on injured reserve.

New England announced the move on Tuesday. To fill his spot on the 53-man roster, the team promoted tight end Stephen Anderson from the practice squad. In addition, the Patriots signed defensive back A.J. Howard and offensive lineman Dan Skipper to the practice squad.

In his second season with New England, the former Wyoming standout appeared in eight games with one start and caught four passes for 52 yards. But he has battled injuries, including a hamstring issue that kept him sidelined for the regular-season finale against the Jets.

The Patriots host the Chargers on Sunday in the divisional playoffs.
